could you please advise what exactly was (or wasn't) happening to you? I've tried your configuration file on current trunk and it was working for me out of the box.
I was playing with it to see if your idea will work and I've ended up with attached configuration. It contains just few modification to yours:
* I've swapped priorities to firstly use the memory channel and fail over to file channel
* I've renamed target file prefixes to distinguish source of the events (memory or file channel)
Scenario that I've run:
* I turned on the flume agents, event's were correctly saved on HDFS
* I turned off name node, event's were not stored in file channel as expected
I'm not sure why the observed behaviour was different than expected and 'I'll investigate that later. Meantime, could you describe what exactly was happening to you?
